If hotplug's installed, the kernel will call it whenever a module is loaded; and modules are loaded as part of S20modutils. I don't see any way of avoiding that, or making the actual invocation happen later; the only control we have afaics is after /sbin/hotplug has actually been invoked. > Can I assume all devices activated by > hotplug aren't used in /etc/rcS.d in any situation? I don't know. You might want to have the USB stuff still work so that your USB keyboard module is loaded automatically, if you've got things setup that way? I think you could get away with telling people "Hotplug doesn't work 'til after /etc/rcS.d: please specify everything you need during rcS.d *explicitly*", though. There's nothing hotplug can do that you can't do by hand. Cheers, aj -- Anthony Towns <firstname.lastname@example.org> <http://azure.humbug.org.au/~aj/> I don't speak for anyone save myself.
